4 out of 5 stars Physical

Sustained and physical. I went left side in. Arm bars are super solid. No chance of falling out. Just moving up is hard. I was getting only 3-4" per effort until it narrowed to hands. Look for Crimps and footholds on the faces outside cracks to find stances for pro or resting.

A total grunt but not particularly difficult considering...
Slow and steady progression is the key. If you start to fight and squirm to get through it quickly you'll fail. You need a nice sized rack with everything from small fingers to a #6. The fun's not over when you get past the squeeze. Took about 45min to lead. 70M rope will barely get you to the ground.
